Lucas Hewlett’s reputation for being an affable, approachable and business savvy lawyer is 100% grounded in reality.
Despite his demanding schedule as a director in Redchip’s Property, Commercial and Insolvency teams, Lucas rates connecting with his clients and colleagues as a top priority. Add his extensive knowledge and commercial nous to his list of attributes, and it’s clear how Lucas has come to build a loyal client following and business network over the past 20 years.
“I love tackling the challenges thrown up by business and property transactions, as well as front-end insolvency work. It’s nice to be able to run these processes for clients and take some of the weight off their shoulders.”
A career highlight for Lucas involves acting for two minority shareholders in a multimillion dollar share sale, earning him the commendation of his peers. “It was a David and Goliath scenario. While all other parties had teams from international law firms, I drove the process from start to finish to achieve an excellent result for my clients.”
While Lucas is comfortable negotiating with large-scale developers and running complex commercial deals, he enjoys reaching successful settlements of all shapes and sizes. No matter the transaction value, Lucas’s focus is on generating maximum commercial advantage and effecting seamless execution.
Those who know Lucas personally will be familiar with his moniker, Hewy. What you may not know is that this nickname dates back to the days of his legendary (or so we’re told) pianola “rock” band, Hewy and the Bullfrogs.
His extensive knowledge, commercial approach and affable nature.
